Justin Bieber and mastermind manager Scooter Braun have been taking cues from the older, more experienced Justin throughout the Biebz’ career. While Usher may have won the bid to mentor the young heartthrob, Braun and the rest of the Bieber team have made sure that the soulful youngster carefully treads the path paved by the former ‘N Sync superstar.
Bieber’s already begun the "transition" period, cutting off his hair just in time to debut a more mature sound, just as his predecessor shed his golden ramen noodle coif for a sleeker look to match the sexier sound of Justified. Now it appears Bieber is enduring his first heartbreak with girlfriend of two years Selena Gomez, recalling the devastation of 2002’s Justin and Britney breakup.
Seems like Operation Justin Timberlake 2.0 is right on track. What’s next for the Biebz?
